Hmm…what could be better than being at IBM Pulse 2011? Being an IBM customer at Pulse, that’s what!
Want to know why it’s smart to be an IBM customer? Well keep reading and you’ll discover just a few of the ways IBM is saying THANK YOU to our immensely valued, extraordinary customers at Pulse 2011.
Pulse VIP Speaker lounge: If you are one of the hundreds of speakers at the event make sure to visit the Speaker Lounge dedicated to our VIPs. After all of the walking you will have done, I bet you would be interested in plopping down in one of our comfy chairs dedicated for back and foot massages. All IBM client speakers are entitled to be pampered by our massage chairs in the Speaker lounge along with other complimentary amenities. While you’re there, indulge in some refreshments or just kick back and use your laptop. Trust me, it will be nice to relax and revitalize from the busy Vegas nightlife and morning sessions so make sure you take advantage of this opportunity. The VIP Speaker Lounge is in the Conference center, level 3, room 308 and is open from 10am –6pm, Monday – Wednesday.
Client Hospitality Lounge in the Pulse Expo: Two words: MARTINI BAR! Save your red tickets for another night (hint: red tickets are redeemable for beer and wine). Sunday night our IBM client references are welcome to hang out in the Client Hospitality Lounge and sip on a martini or two, so don’t cash in those precious red tickets and come...uh…”network” in the lounge.
If martinis are not your thing then we have something even cooler for you on Monday afternoon, come in the lounge and treat yourself to some ice cream bars and sodas …no excuses people, you will walk off all of the calories anyway. The lounge will also be stocked up with refreshments Tuesday so there will surely be something to get your taste buds excited.
If you are an IBM customer who isn’t a reference yet don’t fret, come fill out a quick form in the lounge and you will be all set to partake in the goodies. Not only will you be eligible for the martinis and ice cream, you will also get a cash voucher to spend in the IBM logo store, just for answering a few questions. The Client Hospitality Lounge is open during ALL Pulse Expo hours, so I hope to see you there!
IBM Client Connections: Ever wonder how other companies are using IBM offerings to achieve incredible business results? Why not ask one in person? Take advantage of the IBM Client Connections program by selecting a solution that interests you and then picking from a list of our lighthouse clients. An IBMer will arrange a 30 minute session for you and that client during the Pulse Conference and you can brainstorm, get advice and problem solve, or just hangout and network.
Videos/Case Studies/Press: Get your company’s success story out to the public on IBM’s dollar. Show others how your company is innovative or smarter using IBM solutions by signing up to participate in a video filmed at Pulse, a case study or even by talking to press or analyst. Videos will be promoted on YouTube, iTunes, IBM sites, Twitter, and many other outlets giving you free publicity without any effort on your part, and what can be better than that? Oh yeah, all of that plus a complimentary cash voucher to be used in the logo store.
A Tivoli Case Study writer will be on site to interview you in person, saving you the time and frustration of having to do it after the event. Case studies are yet another excellent way for you to get your IBM Tivoli success story to the public, as well as another easy way for you to get more cash for the IBM logo store!
Don’t have time to meet for an interview? If you are a speaker at Pulse you have the option of letting us use your recorded session to create your case study, and you will still get the cash for the logo store, it has never been so easy. Once our writer has drafted your case study you will have the chance to review and approve before it is published.
With all of the press and analysts that are attending Pulse there are many opportunities to speak to someone and if you’re interested we can make sure you are contacted directly for the opportunity.
Don’t be shy, be proud to be an IBM customer and reap the benefits of your VIP status!

I heard that the folks presenting a Cloud demo at Pulse are running a contest to giveaway an iPad after the Pulse General Session on Tuesday. They would like Pulse attendees to try out the Cloud demo. However, you don't even have to take part in the demo to be eligible. Just bring a business card and drop it in their box near the demo. Here are the deets:
Play a part in the demo "Witness Cloud and Integrated Service Management IN ACTION." Then answer a few simple questions and you could walk away with an iPad!!!
If you are interested in Cloud, you also might add Session #2084 "Integrated Service Management Cloud Simulator Overview" to your agenda. Use the PulseSmartSite to add #2084 to your agenda.
By the way, like my new digs? I think I'm gonna like it here, so here's a big ole SHOUT OUT to my good friend Tiffany Winman for her work with Alison Olssen on building my shiny new bloggy home :)

We already know that the IBM Pulse Conference in Las Vegas highlights how IBM's expertise in analytics, systems management, sensors and security helps to bridge the physical and digital worlds and create new Smarter Planet infrastructures that are interconnected, instrumented, and intelligent. Technologies are being used to make grids, infrastructures, facilities and products more intelligent to save money, improve operations, manage risk, and better manage the use of natural resources. See the press kit that covers some of this material.
After the second and final Pulse general session today, I had a chance to grab a one-on-one interview with Scott Hebner, Vice President of Tivoli Marketing. I asked him a simple question that others have asked me while at the conference. Basically, the question went like this..."Wow, we learned so much in the general sessions the last two days. What are the key bullet points that summarize what I should take away from the Pulse general sessions?"
Here was his elevator summary response, based on my chicken scratch notes:
The IBM Smarter Computing strategy focuses on these three things:
1. Achieve business impact with visibility, control, and automation and the investment in technology to optimize smarter management infrastructures
Strategy without execution is hallucination--"Dr. Danny Sabbah"
IBM applies the strategy to client implementation with three key concepts:
1. Apply smarter technology to industry verticals such as banking, utilities, transportation, health care, education, government, retail
IBM will help clients optimize business outcomes by:

Yep, right on the heels of the most fantastic event in the world (This IS the Pulse blog, ok? We do play favorites here. ) comes SXSW where seemingly millions of
Anyway, I'm going to make my prediction about which
Everyone knows that all you have to do to get elected most popular is give away stuff everyone wants. In some circles you might call that earmarking. GroupMe calls it grilled cheese. Here's how it worked: GroupMe set up a mobile kitchen right outside the Austin Convention Center and gave away free grilled cheese sandwiches and soda to those who sported the GroupMe logo which consists of a pound sign + smiley face.
Here's the part where I quote CNN because I am too lazy (and queasy) to describe this social media toddler rising star in my own words:
"GroupMe, which lets users create “private social networks” with their friends over text messages" and "It’s the rage of SXSWi this year, which is saying something considering this place helped launch Twitter and Foursquare. Here’s the gist: Phones can send a single text message to several people, but you can’t “reply all” to those messages as you could on e-mail, Hecht said. Hence, GroupMe – and competitors like Beluga, kik and Fast Society – lets users create “groups” of friends and co-workers who they can chat with over text. Send a message to the group and all of its members get the text, either in the app, where it uses a phone's data plan, or as a standard SMS. " Get the whole CNN story.
And now you're wondering if I am sick because I indulged in the free sandwich. I did not. It's not that I am above accepting a free meal. But I live with two very small aliens who refuse to eat food unless it is made of cheese: cheese pizza, macaroni and cheese, grilled cheese . . . My palate has matured moved on from grilled cheese so I passed, went inside and paid $14 for a shaved turkey sandwich. So no, I am not featuring GroupMe in the Pulse blog because I am "drinking the koolaid" (which will now be referred to here as "eating the grilled cheese"). But I can totally see the value in GroupMe since I can barely text the one person who shares responsibility for my aliens to pick up a quart of milk without misspelling 80% of the words.
Let's check back next year to see how many of you are "eating the grilled cheese."
